Missing in Michigan was started in 2011, when the first Missing Persons' Day was held on May 7th, 2011 at Ford Field in Detroit, MI. The event was created to assist the families of the missing and help to solve law enforcement's "cold cases" by collecting DNA. Since the integral event, over 100 missing persons and unidentified remains cases have been solved.
This Years' Event:
MISSING PERSONS DAY:
May 25th 2023 from 1-4 PM at Livonia's Madonna University, Franciscan Center, Livonia, MI.
Who Should Attend?
Families and Friends affected by the mysterious disappearance of a loved one and the communities and organizations that assist to bring them home.
What the Day Will Include
This event is a campaign to raise awareness of the issues and impacts surrounding missing persons in the state of Michigan. Families and friends affected by the unexplained and unresolved disappearance of a loved one will be recognized on this day. Officers will take tips on old cases and information on any new cases reported at the event. Local law enforcement will be on hand to answer the community's questions and concerns. Child ID kits will also be given out.
A private roundtable discussion will be held from 9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. for family members with a missing loved one.
What to Bring
Families of missing persons are encouraged to bring at least two biological relatives (for family reference samples) of the missing loved one and any police reports, x-rays or other identifying documents to update law enforcement digital databases. Families and friends should feel free to wear memorial T-shirts, bring posters and any literature to display and commemorate their missing loved one.
